Sometimes we all need reminders. The kids certainly do. And sometimes the grown-ups do, too. I just got a reminder and I am really grateful for it. I needed it. Sometimes you get blind or forgetful to your own greatness. And your goodness. I know as I continue raising these kids I may be asking them this question a lot. I hope I can remember to ask it of them without anger, not in anger, but to really hear what they think ads they move through their life. As their mom, I have to love them through everything but I want them to also feel that whatever they are or where ever they find themselves in their own journey, its okay and they will be okay.
What else today? I am so thankful to have time with Oliver alone. Its hard to find one on one time with him now that he is becoming such an interesting and outspoken little fellow. Not a lot of quiet time to play and hang out without a big sister or little sister around. Today we spent time doing some art, using a sensory box of rice, and putting away clothes. Then he got into Sam’s hair paste. I guess Sam put some in his hair this morning and, well, Ollie wanted to do it himself this afternoon. He globbed this much into his hair in the one minute I was in the laundry room getting more clothes to fold. Bath night!!
